U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Kansas City District archaeological collections were brought to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory in September 2012. The St. Louis VCP laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections program, which is staffed through Brockington and Associates, an archaeological contract firm located in Norcross, Georgia.

The procedures employed to re-house the archaeological material from the Smith’s Fork Site (23CL223) 2009–2010 project are discussed below and follow those procedures utilized by the St. Louis VCP laboratory. In the re-housing process of each investigative effort of the USACE, Kansas City District collection, the same standard procedures and Fort Osage guidelines were followed. Upon completion of the curation management project, the collection was sent to Fort Osage for permanent curation.
